I'm not a vendor in the truest sense of the word, as I didn't make this app and nor do I get anything if you buy it. But I feel like I should tell you about it because a friend of mine wrote it just for me.

 

It's called Par Timer and all it's for is doing dryfire drills with par times. I wanted an app that's super simple to use with no frills so I could burn through tons of dryfire reps. I made sure the entire screen was the start/stop button so I wouldn't have to look for a tiny ass button to start reps, and I had him put the real range commands on there to make it line up with real stages.

 

I've been using the hell out of this app running my dryfire sessions. I'd like you guys to try it out and tell me what you think. I'm very good friends with the guy who made it and would be more than willing to pass along the feedback. My idea now is to give the app a way to replace the dryfire notebook -- give me a chart or something where I can keep track of my current par times across different drills. Let me know any other ideas you have.

Can't afford 1/4 of a box of 9mm?

I've been using the long-abandoned Surefire app and bought this one. It's nice and simple. Main complaint is that the low volume of the buzzer, even with the volume cranked up to full. I don't think I could hear it across my dry-fire ludus if I'm in the middle of a reload or something noisy.

I downloaded it. It's pretty basic but it works well.

Dry fire is supposed to be cheap (free). Thats why we don't put ammo in the gun right?

How much did you spend on your gun/holster/mags/mag holders/belt? Three bucks is a shitty beer or coffee, but you don't want to pay that for something you would use again and again?

In process - first I have to back up and upgrade iOS. I try to avoid the bleeding edge when it comes to operating systems.

This one is free, loud enough for indoor par. I have been using the Surefire but might try this until I update iOS.

I tried it out at an indoor range last night, had it hooked up to Howard Leights via a cable to the phone and the volume is too low when people are shooting in the stalls next to you. Also, a settings button would be nice instead of just pressing down on the screen. Other than that, it works like it should.

I talked to him about turning the volume up, he said it's very feasible. Thanks for the feedback.

Way up for noisy environments, and down for dry firing when the wife is asleep.

And you guys did notice the volume is controlled by your phone's volume, right?

Had mine cranked to max volume. Thought that the Howard Leights would amplify it, but apparently that only works for the built-in mic.
